Editorial Reviews

After a revenge killing goes tragically wrong, a troubled college professor (Nick Stahl of ''Carnivàle'' and Terminator 3) is sentenced to a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. But through an experimental socialization program, he meets a beautiful fellow inmate (Olivia Wilde of TRON: Legacy and ''House M.D.'') with a shocking secret as well as a volatile psychopath (Dash Mihok of Punisher: War Zone and The Perfect Storm) with a deadly history.
In a place of sudden violence and buried emotions, can two damaged souls now make one last stab at redemption? Tariq Trotter (aka Black Thought of The Roots), Pruitt Taylor Vince (''The Walking Dead'', Natural Born Killers, ''Deadwood'') and Oscar® nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog, ''24'') co-star in this intense drama about guilt, compassion and the dark trauma that lives ON THE INSIDE.

Art professor Allen Meneric (Nick Stahl) is being evaluated at a mental institution for criminals. He brutally murdered a man who he thought raped his girlfriend, with the irony of it being the wrong man. While in prison he has flashbacks to his childhood to let us know he has other issues as his mom's number two son.

In prison Allen meets Ben Marshall played by a Toj Johnson looking Pruitt Taylor Vince. He has a wonderful character, whose crime we don't find out until the end. He provides the production with some good dry humor during the early slow character build up. Lines such as: "I have friends, Bob and Isaac. I can't really count Isaac because only Bob can see him."

Eventually Allen gets moved to minimum security where he meets the bipolar Mia (Olivia Wilde) whose character subplot was weak. The film eventually transforms from a smart psychological drama to an action film that doesn't quite make it. Good acting. Sharp dialouge. But the ending didn't bring it home.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, sex, no nudity.

This is another film shot in Pittsburgh which due to its financial incentives, infrastructure, and skilled locals is becoming the "Hollywood" of the east.

ON THE INSIDE may have some problems, but overall it is a pretty good thriller that boasts some excellent performances and many well-written scenes, one of which should have you jumping out of your seat. It did me.

Evoking memories of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, albeit without the humor and a much more modest budget, writer-director D.W. Brown's film tells of a decent, but troubled young man (Nick Stahl), who is sent to a psychiatric institution for the criminally insane, only to find himself trapped when another inmate (Dash Mihok), a sociopath, leads a deadly escape attempt.

Olivia Wilde and Pruitt Taylor Vince, as well as Stahl and Mihok, are quite impressive in their roles, yet the one major disappointment in this picture is the performance delivered by one-time Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo, ordinarily a very fine actress. In all fairness to Ms. Aghdashloo, her role as the head of the psychiatric facility is poorly conceived and written. She was unable to breathe any life into this cardboard character, nor was director Brown able to help her. Thankfully, her screen time in this otherwise entertaining movie is minimal.

Anchor Bay Entertainment has released ON THE INSIDE in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS
Nick Stahl's girlfriend is supposedly raped (not shown). He then kills the person his girlfriend identifies as the rapist (shown only in bits and pieces as a flashback).

He is sentenced to a mental institution. The rest of the film shows his interaction with the staff and fellow inmates and we learn more about Nick's issues through flashbacks of his childhood.

It this movie is intended to be a realistic drama, it fails miserably. There are a few interesting moments but it feels more like a PG-13/made for television movie that attempts to show the difficulties of lasting guilt.

If you're hoping for a realistic story of what life might be like in a mental institution for violent criminals (like I was) you will likely be disappointed.

I'm not one for stories that throw in a little romance to something I expect to be more of thriller, yet I was quite moved by many things- including the bit of romance thrown in here; it didn't bother me at all, and did a good job of adding to the whole story- I thought the acting by each of these Indy or lesser known actors was fantastic. I purchased it because I like Nick Stahl's acting, but ended up loving the story- this could possibly be because of personal experience- but mainly because each actor evoked strong feelings, which I'm almost sure each was trying to do- even the hateful ones made me think.I even found certain lines amusing. Let's just say this movie has something for everyone. I hate reviewing movies as I tend to throw in spoilers so I won't say much else. This film would appeal to anyone who likes a good drama, a thriller with some romance added. Much suspense also, you might even say a bit of psychological "gotta-think-about-that" included. Didn't expect to like it as much I do. As much I wish there was a better ending,I think it deserves to be watched more than once. (ESPECIALLY if you try streaming this through Amazon Instant Video - watch it on DISC). I have no idea why the cover includes the words "Redemption comes at a price" - will be watching it again because I'm not getting that at all. Still, found it to be 5 stars- despite this and a couple weird things missed by editors.
